In the Long Term: What Makes Each Sign Commit in a Relationship

This article is reviewed and verified by our advisor

Written by Narayana Montufar | Celebrity astrologer

You have probably witnessed a friend breaking up with their 3-rd boyfriend in a year because "the chemistry just isn't there anymore," or a couple that's been happily together for over 5 years but still hasn't tied the knot. Have you ever wondered what planetary placements in our birth charts dictate commitment style, relationship needs, and non-negotiables? Below is the full rundown of each zodiac sign's commitment style — and things that scare them about being in a long-term relationship, too!

Reason 1: Love of Freedom

Freedom Lovers of the Zodiac: Sun or Moon in Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, or Aquarius

Dating any of these signs is exciting in its own way, as their zest for life is contagious for anyone around them. They will make any weekend fun —whether you're skydiving or simply shopping at the farmer's market. However, because they are tireless in their thirst for action, rapport, and adventure, at times, anyone with their luminaries placed in Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius, or Aquarius will have to, sometimes, fly solo—and that's totally okay! From my experience, when each one in the couple accepts this, their relationship truly begins to thrive! 

With their fun and bigger-than-life personalities needing action, movement, and connection, the Freedom Loving zodiac group can't be tamed! Their natures call for time alone and freedom to enjoy life to the fullest. So, they will most likely fly away into the winds at the slightest sign of control from their partners. 

Their dealbreakers…

Aries: Boredom & scarcity of sexual connection. 

Gemini: Lack of intellectual stimulation.

Sagittarius: Absence of mental and psychical exploration.

Aquarius: Not sharing the same political or world views.

Reason 2: High Standards and Stiff Traditions

The Traditional Clan of the Zodiac: Sun or Moon in Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, or Capricorn

Dating anyone with their Sun or Moon in Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, or Capricorn can feel like a lecture in "adulting." They pretty much have life (or at least a big part) figured out and have worked from an early age to build a strong foundation for themselves. Even the ones who aren't super success-driven are at least masters at their craft, as they have been perfecting it! 

They are homey and family-oriented, preferring to nest and Netflix and chill rather than go out and explore. For them, committing to someone who, like them, is serious about having a steady income, established career, and comfortable home life is key. Because they are ready to commit, they are in it for the long haul and want the same in return. 

Their dealbreakers…

Taurus: monetary instability.

Cancer: not having a good family or foundation.

Virgo: chaos & dirtiness.

Capricorn: lack of ambition.

Reason 3: Searching for an Ideal Partner

The Eternal Seekers of the Zodiac: Sun or Moon in Leo, Libra, Scorpio, or Pisces

Anyone who has someone in their lives with big Leo, Libra, Scorpio, or Pisces energy feels instantly connected to something bigger when in their presence. There is something about them. They have that je ne sais quoi that perhaps comes from their eternal search for magic. They are the believers and the seekers of the zodiac, which sometimes requires experiencing the full spectrum of emotions, from black to white. 

When searching for a life partner, they settle with someone who, like them, believes in the natural laws of the universe. And in the same way, they bring in the shine, substance and full embodiment of what they believe in. Those who aren't ready to take that ride with them better stay down here on Earth. 

Their deal breakers…

Leo: lack of attention from their partner. 

Libra: absence of harmony in their environment. 

Scorpio: superficiality & lies. 

Pisces: inability to merge at a soul level.

What's fantastic about astrology is that we all can turn things around in our relationships by analyzing the differences between us and our partners and working together to achieve mutual understanding in the long term.
